I have a PhD in ECE, and since 2018 I applied to 100s of positions in my field, and all my applications were rejected from the onset, except for a handful of phone interviews, and one technical interview when I skipped the phone interview, after which my applications were also rejected. I don't know why this is happening and what I am doing wrong. I tailor my resume and write cover letters to most positions I apply for. How can I get a feedback about why my applications are not being considered? I worked in the academia for a couple of years before, but is this a strong reason not to consider my applications in the industry, for example? Now I have gap in my resume and things are getting harder and harder for recruiters to notice my resume.
